With more than 2,600 students, employees and community members regularly using the WLHC, this $5 million renovation breathed new life into the dated facility. Renovations included a new community entrance, expanded fitness areas, an expansion of the HVAC system, new pool mechanical systems and decking, and new locker rooms.

The WLHC renovation is an investment in the quality of life for students, athletes and the community.

“For years I've enjoyed walking the indoor track in the Walton Lifetime Health Complex, away from Arkansas' constantly fluctuating weather. My one complaint has been the lack of air conditioning in the multi-court gymnasium area. This new renovation will be so wonderful!”
